Fruit Bats - Sometimes a Cloud Is Just a Cloud: Slow Growers, Sleeper Hits and Lost Songs (2001–2021) (Deluxe Vinyl 2LP)

$ 32.00

Thoughtfully compiled by bandleader Eric D. Johnson (also of Bonny Light Horseman), this 2-LP collection is split in two distinct halves. The first disc, set in reverse chronological order, cherry-picks from Fruit Bats' grand catalog of folk/pop earworms. Fan favorites from Johnson's most celebrated albums, like 2011's The Tripper, 2016's Absolute Loser and as current as 2019's Gold Past Life, are compiled into a perfectly arranged introduction to the timeless pop sounds of Fruit Bats. The second disc is a deeper dive into the FB world with demos, live recordings, previously unreleased tracks & new material from Johnson & Co (the "co" here being a slew of accomplished musicians that occasionally includes names like the late Richard Swift, Josh Kaufman (Bonny Light Horseman) and even legendary Dinosaur Jr. leader J. Mascis!).

The album will be released exclusively as a 2-LP collection pressed on gorgeous pink-in-violet color vinyl with a gatefold jacket.
